Bug Description

Right now the API calls to list containers and/or objects in a container make a single call to swift without a LIMIT or MARKER parameter, therefore we always get "page 1" and only up to the 10,000 item limit Swift will return.

This has two implicit problems: 1) we can never see more than 10,000 objects by any means, and 2) transferring 10,000 objects in 1 API call is a huge mess of data transfer.

I propose implementing the LIMIT and MARKER parameters for the swift API, set a sane default for LIMIT (say, 100 per "page") and a "more" button to page through the items.
